12/27/16 Perch Pond

Thirty four degrees and mostly sunny. We were going to do the new trails but the little parking spot had not been plowed and I was afraid of getting stuck so we went back to the North Trail.

Surprised at how much snow was still on the ground. They had done some grooming and that snow was 3 or 4 inches deep while beside it was 5 to 7. The crust on the trail was mostly firm enough to support Kelley.

Only some of the trails had been groomed - we found the small sledge they had pulled - so we didn't make it to the big pond. The small pond was ice, slush, and water.

Not to be deterred.

Turned out to be a nice hike if we stayed on the groomed trails- no one had recently been on any of the trails and the ungroomed were a bit of a slog. Kelley did very well and also liked the groomed trail - off and in the deeper snow she would break through. 1  1/2 hours 


  1. That last photo of Kelley laying in the slushy water made me shiver! She's one tough doggie!

    1. Hi Linda- She is, I've never seen her be bothered by cold and we have been out on some very cold days
